TIME Magazine MOM BREAST FEEDING Controversial Photo

 

 

Time Magazine has the internet a blaze because of the new, controversial cover of 26-year-old Jamie Lynne Grumet who poses on the cover with her 3-year-old son while breastfeeding him.  This has been a controversial topic for over 20 years, as many people feel that 3-years of age is too old to continue to breastfeed a child. The magazine took an in depth look at "attachment parenting."  Martin Schoeller shot the mother and other mothers who follow the process and breastfeed their toddlers.  It confronts the topic of when is the right time to stop breastfeeding a child.

Jordin Sparks V MAGAZINE Remembering WHITNEY HOUSTON

Jordin Sparks V MAGAZINE Remembering WHITNEY HOUSTON 

 

 

Jordin Sparks will be in V Magazine's issue and she has a poignant interview in which she remember Whitney Houston.  The star who co-starred with Whitney, in the up-and-coming movie Sparkle talked to the mag about the time she spent with the legendary with the legendary singer and getting to know her before her death.  

 
 
Part musical, part cautionary tale, the movie tells the story of three sisters, Sparkle, Delores (Tika Sumpter) and Sister (Carmen Ejogo), whose successful Motown singing act disintegrates in the face of drug addiction and familial strife. Originally Houston had signed on solely as exectutive producer, but eventually agreed to also play the girls’ mother, Emma. “I think she was hesitant at first, and then she said, ‘Yeah, I really want to do that,” says Sparks.
 
On set in Detroit at the first table read, Sparks, who has d worshiped the pop star since childhood, was appropriately tongue-tied. “She walked in and I was like, ‘This. Is. Awesome.’” But over time the two women grew close, bonding over a slavish devotion to the craft-services table and a near constant habit of singing under their breath. “One day, actually, she was walking behind me and singing ‘I Have Nothing,’” recalls Sparks. “And then she reached out and said, ‘I forgot I sang that. I was annoyed that day and just didn’t ant to do it. We ended up doing it in three takes!’”
 
When Houston died unexpectedly in February, Sparks (who attended her memorial service) was grief-stricken. “She was always so full of light,” she says, choking back tears . “Every day… she would open the door and ask, ‘How are my babies this morning? Are my babies good? God is good. Praise the Lord.’”
 
Still Sparks has no illusions about the demons that plagued her late costar (and, ironically, some of the films characters). “I can see how people can fall and people can flip or they can just get in with the wrong crowd.”
 
 
The movie will debut August 17, 2012

Grab Your Popcorn: Kim Kardashian vs Kris Humphries

Grab Your Popcorn: Kim Kardashian vs Kris Humphries

 

 

 

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian's divorce battle is about to hit epic proportions.  Kim has been trying to settle the divorce out of court, but Kris will not budge, he wants Kim to admit she defrauded him into marriage and offer a public apology.  That is not going to happen anytime soon and reports are now surfacing that they may be in a courtroom as soon as June.  Radaronline reports:

 

Kris is anticipating that Kim will be deposed first, this is something that his lawyer is insisting upon. Kim's deposition will take place at her lawyer, Laura Wasser's office, in early June and they are still wrangling over whether or not it will be videotaped," a source close to the former couple tells RadarOnline.com. "Kris' depo will take place shortly thereafter and both should have their formal sit down interviews for their divorce proceedings by the end of June."

Team Humphries plan on grilling Kardashian about several subjects, including what happened to the $325k white Ferrari the then-couple was given as a wedding gift by a wealthy Malaysian businessman.

 

"Kris wants a divorce trial so that the truth can finally come out. Amongst other matters, he wants to know about the Ferrari that the couple got from a very wealthy Malaysian businessman that attended the wedding," a source previously told RadarOnline.com. "Kris was at Kim's house when the car was delivered — it was given to both of them, but Kim has kept sole ownership and has used it extensively. She will be asked about it, under oath, on the stand at the trial."

Denver The Last DinoFart?

Denver The Last DinoFart?

 

 

 

We might want to rename the Brachiosaurus with the monikerGassiosaurus, new research indicates. The gassy emissions from these giant dinosaurs may have been enough to warm the Earth, the researchers say.

Sauropods are large plant-eating dinosaurs typified by such titans as Apatosaurus (once known as Brontosaurus) and Brachiosaurus. When they lived, during the Mesozoic era — from about 250 million years ago until the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago — the climate was warm and wet. Nothing on Earth today compares with these giants.

The researchers found that the greenhouse gas methane produced by all sauropods across the globe would have been about 520 million tons per year, a number on par with the total amount of methane currently produced by both natural and man-made sources. [Album: World's Biggest Beasts]

Questionable numbers

The researchers, led by David Wilkinson of Liverpool John Moores University in the United Kingdom, did their best to get an accurate estimate of how much gas these big dinosaurs would have created, but their answers are still just estimates based on multiple assumptions, they warn.

The greenhouse gas methane is a natural byproduct of the digestive process of plant eaters, especially in herbivores called ruminants (like cows and camels). The researchers suspect that like ruminants, sauropods would have harbored methane-producing bacteria in their intestines to help digest these fibrous foods.

There is currently no way to tell what kind of bacteria lived in the digestive systems of dinosaurs,what gasses they produced, or what those digestive systems would have looked like, but Wilkinson thinks they would have produced methane like today's animals.

"To process that amount of vegetation they have to be relying on microbes in their digestive system," Wilkinson told LiveScience. "But without a time machine you can't be sure."

Crunching gassy numbers

They used a mathematical model to determine how much gas these plant-eating giants would have eaten. They extended data on methane production by modern mammals, based on size, up into the reaches of the sauropods.

In their calculations the researchers used middle-of-the-road numbers: 10 sauropods, each weighing 20,000 pounds (9,071 kilograms), could have roamed 1 square kilometer of lush Mesozoic habitats. "We've taken a middle-ground value," Wilkinson said. "We tried to be reasonably conservative."

They found that these 10 sauropods would have contributed 7.6 tons (6.9 tonnes) of methane every year. Expanding this number to cover the amount of land estimated to be hospitable habitat for these animals (about half the land on Earth at the time), the researchers end up with more than 550 million tons (500 million tonnes) of methane produced every year.

"I was expecting a number like that produced by cows, so the size of the number really surprised me," Wilkinson said. "It's way, way, way ahead of the estimated methane production by modern livestock." (Cows produce 55 to 110 million tons (50 to 100 million tonnes) of methane each year, he estimated.)

Big eaters

It makes sense, based on the animal's huge size, that they would make much more methane per individual than a cow. But, there are several other reasons why these large dinosaurs could have produced so much more gas than modern herbivores.

The animals would have had plenty of plants to eat, because they could reach high and low, and because of the warm climate, there was plenty of vegetation; in addition, these animals had much vaster areas in which to graze.

The real question is, did these dinosaur's gassy emissions warm the planet?

"The thing about methane is it is an extremely potent greenhouse gas," Wilkinson said. If the levels were anywhere near where their calculations indicate, he said, it very well could have been one of many factors that made that era warmer and wetter than modern times.

The study is detailed in today's (May 7) issue of the journal Current Biology.
